By day I’m a director of Cor Comms, a Marketing, Design and PR consultancy.
By night and on weekends I’m a Tasmanian landscape artist who loves to explore colour and light, depth and movement as well as nature’s abstractions. I love the outdoors, photography and adventure sports. Painting is my way of reliving and exploring the experience. I love experimenting with how tiny bits of detail can work with looser styles to create an overall impression.
I have always had a love for drawing and painting and spend every spare opportunity honing my skills. Although I have been painting, exhibiting and selling my work for a while, my professional art career really took off after a trip to Coles Bay with the family, a kayak and a waterproof camera. My daughter took some semi submerged photos of the landscape. I was inspired enough to I started experimenting with some larger semi abstract and colourful acrylic paintings of the water, beach and mountains. I haven’t looked back.
Art is in the family. My father Peter is an artist, art teacher and lecturer in art education (retired) and my auntie Kit is a national award winning artist.
I’ve exhibited in Hobart and Melbourne and recently received a highly commended in the 2019 and 2021 Kingborough Art Prize. I have clients locally, all over Australia and internationally, including London and New York. I feel very privileged that my work is in people’s homes and lives. I’m passionate about making art accessible and I especially like it when people new to buying art, reach out and make that first investment. There is nothing quite like having real art on your walls, especially if it means something to you as well and the work I do resonates with locals, expats and visitors alike.
I completed a Bachelor of Economics at the University of Tasmania and then decided to follow my passion and went back to Uni to study graphic design at The Tasmanian School of Art. During this time I was also awarded the top gong at the prestigious Award School (Advertising) which cemented my career direction in advertising. I’ve spent the last 25 years working as an Art Director and Graphic Designer in advertising agencies and large media organisations in Hobart, Melbourne and Brisbane. I am now a Director of Cor Comms, a Marketing, Design and PR consultancy. I am passionate about design and advertising creative and work across all media from social media, TV and radio, print and press.
I have also written and illustrated a children’s book.
